  • Thanks for the information with this new RSAT, just today I applied onto my computer and finally I have access to Active Directory User and Groups, but please take a note that the tab of Dial-in is not available, I dont know why because on Windows Vista with adminpack you can access to the tab of Dial-in
    So at this momento RSAT for Windows 7RC I can access to AD (Windows Server 2003)

  • Hi: Well I look the information that you give me, but I found that is related to Gateway Services on Windows 2003, and maybe I explain wrong. This is the issue: When you use the tool to administer Active Directory and look for a user account and click Properties , the tab of Dial-in is missing, the others tabs are present like Group Membership, Account, Environment and so on, but Dial-in I dont know what happend with this. When I have Windows Vista I can use the Active Directory and access this tab of Dial-in. Any suggestions will be welcome, meanwhile when I need to access Dial-in I used Remote Desktop to connect to the server and check-out the permission.

  • I wonder if I've missed a configuration option or if perhaps there is a tweak(s) I can perform in Windows 7 to get the Active Directory Users and Computers to have the same functionality as the one we run under Windows XP?

    I know there have been many comments about missing tabs in the RSAT and those missing tabs seem to continue to be missing in Windows 7.  Under Vista, there was some 'hack' you could perform to get some files from a 2008 server and register some files, etc. to get this functionality back, but that doesn't appear to work under Windows 7.

    Currently the below tabs are missing.

    For computers:
       - Dial-in

    For users:
       - Dial-in
       - Terminal Services Profile

    We use the Dial-in and Terminal Services Profile tabs on a daily basis.  Is there a way to get these tabs to show up in the ADUC of Windows 7 RSAT?  If not, then I'm thinking it pretty much means we have to continue using a Windows XP workstation to run ADUC.

    Thank you.

    Did you ever get this figured out?  I need to get the Dial-In tab to appear also.

  • Was this removed? If so, why?
    Wednesday, August 12, 2009 8:03 PM
  • Okay, so this is not really an issue with RSAT on Windows 7, but rather RSAT on either Vista or Windows 7, correct?  I have RSAT on my Vista machines and there is no Dial-in tab or Terminal Services tab, just as described above.

  • I used an option that worked for me in WinXP but seems to work as well in Windows 7 (RC)

    First create a batch file with the following content.

    cd /d %SystemRoot%\System32
    copy \\yourDC\Admin$\System32\mprsnap.dll *.*
    copy \\yourDC\Admin$\System32\rasuser.dll *.*
    copy \\yourDC\Admin$\System32\rtrfiltr.dll *.*
    regsvr32 rasuser.dll
    
    regedit /s dialin.reg
    Then create a registry file with below content called dialin.reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\RasDialin.UserAdminExt]
    @="" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\RasDialin.UserAdminExt\CLSID]
    @="{B52C1E50-1DD2-11D1-BC43-00C04FC31FD3}" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\RasDialin.UserAdminExt.1]
    @="" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\RasDialin.UserAdminExt.1\CLSID]
    @="{B52C1E50-1DD2-11D1-BC43-00C04FC31FD3}"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MMC\NodeTypes\{19195a5b-6da0-11d0-afd3-00c04fd930c9}\Extensions\NameSpace]
    "{B52C1E50-1DD2-11D1-BC43-00C04FC31FD3}"="RAS Dialin - User Node Extension"
    Then run the batchfile with Admin Rights!!

    Let me know if this works

    Here is the new link.

  • Hi Ronnie,

    I tried your download link and install it, but i am getting an error "The update is not applicable to your computer". Any idea?

    Thanks!
    Tuesday, August 18, 2009 11:49 PM
  • I am getting the same error.

  • Hi Ronnie,

    Thanks!

    One reason you can get that message is that you already have it installed.

    Try opening Control Panel\Programs and features, and clicking on "Turn Windows feeatures on and off".  See if the features you want are available.
    Wednesday, August 19, 2009 12:01 AM
  • I checked the programs and features and it is not listed there. Thanks
    Wednesday, August 19, 2009 12:15 AM
  • I'm having the same issue. I've even done a full fresh re-install to try and get aroound this issue.

    I currently have the following hotfixes installed:
    KB973540
    KB973346
    KB972636
    KB972260
    KB970858
    KB970421

    I'm running X64.
    Wednesday, August 19, 2009 11:23 PM
  • Hi,

    if you have installed Windows 7 / 64 bit you must install the downloadfile "amd64fre_GRMRSATX_MSU.msu".

    Regards, Anja

  • I am getting that error on 1 machine that has 32 bit and 1 machine that has 64 bit. I am using the correct file on each machine

  • I've been fighting this RSAT "update is not applicable" issue as well. Most info I've found says to uninstall and reinstall (which you can't do if you never had it installed) or it is recommended that your remove specific update, which is not installed.

    RSAT and variants of the name do not appear in the Add/Remove Program list nor in the Windows components list.  The following updates are the only ones listed as installed:
    KB973540
    KB972260
    KB970858
    KB970789
    KB970421
    KB973346
    KB972636

    This is on the 32bit version. win7, build 6.1.7100

    Downloaded and redownloaded the file, tried both the x86 and the x64 versions of the install just to make sure.

  • The information that came to me is:

    To everyone running build 7100 - that is the RC version of Windows 7.  These tools will only install on the RTM version of Windows 7.

    Wednesday, August 26, 2009 4:09 PM
  • The RSA Tools also install on Server 2008 R2.

    Can anybody confirm this? Based on the first post by Ronnie it is RC and not RTM.

    Thanks.

    Yes.  The link at the top is the RSAT for the RTM Build.  I have both installed.  The link above installs fine on RTM but woll not install on RC.

  • Why is the RSAT for Windows 7 RTM version so huge when Vista version was less than 25 MB?

    Hi

    Please see the following post. I believe this information still applies to the current RSAT tools.

    Windows 7 RSAT

    Hope this helps.

  • It different than Adminpak.  After you install it, you need to go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off > Remote Server Administration Tools and choose the tools, such as ADUC, that you want.  (Drill down to find the AD DS Tools for installing ADUC, ADSS, etc.)

  • thanks, that was some useful info
    Friday, August 06, 2010 11:36 AM
  • that brings me to my next question. I also installed the EMC for Exch 2007 but I do not see the mail tabs for the user in ADUC. How do I make that happen? Adavnced features didnt get me the tabs.

  • FYI. There is a TechNet Wiki topic now that discusses installing RSAT on Windows Vista, Windows 7, as well as the server products Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/remote-server-administration-tools-rsat-for-windows-vista-windows-7-windows-server-2008-and-windows-server-2008-r2-dsforum2wiki.aspx
